Kinara is the LA brand loved by over 100 celebs including Johnny Depp, Gerard Butler, Nelsan Ellis, Enrique Murciano, Djimon Hounsou, Dean McDermott and many more.

Kinara is the brainchild of renowned US facialist and skin care expert, Olga Lorencin-Northrup, who owns spa to the stars Kinara Skin Care Clinic in the heart of West Hollywood. Limited by existing product lines, she was driven to address prevalent skin issues effectively but not aggressively. Kinara is now available for the first time in the UK at , starting from £20 for a travel size Skin Quencher.

Here Olga shares her top tips and products for male grooming:

“Oil free moisturisers are popular and effective for men. Kinara’s Weightless Moisturiser, £48 is extremely effective because it’s light, easy to use, and packed with antioxidants.

For anti-aging the most effective products include Kinara Lactic Acid Hydrating Serum, £58 as this utilizes cell boosting lactic acid to produce glycolic acid and promote collagen production.

I also recommend male clients to use Kinara Reparative Nutrient Serum, £78 for firming, line-fighting and collagen production with peptide technology and high levels of hyraluronic acid. This helps soothe sensitive skin with Omega 6 and borage oil.

For intense skin firming I recommend Kinara Intense Moisturiser with Peptides, £74.  This contains oligo peptides along with a skin protecting caramide complex and olive leaf extract to shield skin from free radical and photo



Red Carpet Facial Kit, £120

The Red Carpet Facial gained fame at Kinara Skin Care Clinic as the secret weapon for stars requiring immediate, highly visible results. This kit was designed to create the same results-driven facial at home and on-demand in 3 simple steps:

1. Peel

2. Neutralise

3. Mask

Konjac Sponge is made with nothing but 100% Konjac plant root and has been used by the Japanese for over 1500 years for its health giving properties.

Konjac Sponge is made of naturally moisture rich plant fibre; the net like structure gently massages skin leaving it clean and refreshed with no need for additional cleansers or soaps.

Used pre-shave, the sponge tackles in-growing hairs and reduces redness afterwards; as it’s soft and gentle it’s ideal for men to soothe and cleanse after shaving. The soft edge exfoliates skin and helps to drain any fluids from tired eyes, brightening the face..

All sponges are naturally pH balanced, which are perfect for sensitive and acne prone skin.

Konjac sponges are available in the UK at, Selfridges, Fenwicks, Harvey Nichols and many independent retailers starting from £6.99.

The Original Konjac Sponge Puff – £6.99

This naturally moisturising sponge balances the acidity of the skin’s impurities and oils, stimulates blood
flow and encourages growth of new skin cells. Should you choose to use additional cleansers use a fraction of the normal amount as the sponge will generate more bubbles – better on the environment and your finances!

Konjac Sponge Puff With Added Bamboo Charcoal -£6.99

Perfect for men’s skin & those with oily skin prone to spots & out-breaks. The Bamboo Charcoal contains activated carbon & various minerals that enhance absorptive ability, perfect for removing excess oil. Bamboo Charcoal is also a natural antioxidant so will help fight hard-to-reach, acne-causing bacteria. One sporty teenage boy reported his spots cleared up after just 3 days of using this sponge.

Konjac Sports Sponge with Travel Pouch – £11.99 each

The Konjac Sports Sponge is made from 100% pure white Konjac and fits perfectly in the hand for all over
freshening up: whether it be in the shower or to refresh the brow on the treadmill. The sponge comes in its own travel pouch, ideal for carrying to and from the gym or away on holidays.
